Dead Bees
This photo provided by the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation shows some of the thousands of dead and dying bees found in the parking lot of a shopping center in Wilsonville, Ore., southwest of Portland. Oregon officials say their preliminary investigation indicates blooming trees in the lot were recently sprayed with an insecticide known to be toxic to bees. The pencil was placed in the frame by the source to show scale. (AP Photo/The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation)
